Mannheimer Swartling has established a new business unit, MSA Innovation Lab. The purpose of the unit is to manage the firm's innovation work and to drive the development of legal advice of the future. Through MSA Innovation Lab, the firm will:

  • Support and collaborate with recently started companies that develop applications for Mannheimer Swartling and the firm's clients through an incubator for start-ups within Legal Tech.
  • Collaborate with leading researchers in digitalisation.
  • Conduct its own development of digital applications that streamline the advice to the firm's clients.
  • Develop and provide digital platforms to which the firm's clients have access.

"The digitalisation of the Law Industry has just begun and we are working actively to stay in the absolute forefront. Our industry is rapidly changing, and in order to cost-effectively assist our clients with the opportunities and challenges they face, we are now taking another step to meet their new and over time changing needs," says Jan Dernestam, Managing Partner at Mannheimer Swartling.

"We work with some of the most prominent companies and organisations in Sweden and worldwide. In order to help our clients maintain their strong positions, we must be innovative and constantly provide them with value-creating advice that serves their respective businesses. The MSA Innovation Lab will play a very important role for that purpose. Now, let us take the Law Industry to the next level," Jan Dernestam continues.

MSA Innovation Lab is led by Elisabet Dahlman Löfgren who is Head of Innovation and Knowledge Management at Mannheimer Swartling.
